Still no agreement ahead of latest Vivendi/Mediaset court date

Companies are due back in court today

Vivendi and Mediaset have failed to reach an agreement in their on-going dispute as it heads to court again.

Vivendi is challenging Mediaset’s plan to set up a Dutch holding company to as it looks to expand in Europe.

The latest court hearing will hear Vivendi’s request for Mediaset to suspend its plan for the new company, titled MediaForEurope (MFE).

According to Reuters, Mediaset is expected to hold a board meeting before today’s hearing to agree to amend part of the by-laws of the planned Dutch holding company, but sources say that is likely to be enough to placate Vivendi.
